    So I am working on switching my silk plants for real in my betta tank. Already have some suggestions. Putting up pictures later today when I get home and add the new additions so as to gather some insight.

    Tank: 5g Mini Bow front Desktop Aquarium w/hood
    Lighting:Zoo Med Ultra Sun Daylight Compact Fluorescent Bulb
    Regular WC's last numbers 0, 0, 30
    Inhabitants:1 Male Betta - 3 Ghost Shrimp

    Plant List So Far:
    1 Assorted Anubis 4" approx.
    1 Moneywort
    1 Scarlet Temple
    1 Java moss, grass or some other similar plant (in the process of looking for still)

    Tank receives lighting from the tank light and plenty through the window as my bedroom is small so when I open it the light tends to fill the whole room.

    So, how often would you guys recommend using fertilizer or CO2 just on a basis?

    What are your favorite products?

    Liquid? Pump? or does it matter?

    I am going to hold off a week till my next paycheck but gathering information ahead of time

    Those plants don't demand much and you could get away without co2 and ferts.

    If you really want to however I'd recommend seachem flourish as the liquid fertiliser and buy/make a co2 system and buy/make a co2 in tank test solution.
